What Is Wire Fraud?

Wire fraud is defined as intentionally using a communication device (e.g. landline telephones, cellphones, computers, tablets, etc.) to send information from one state to another as part of a scheme to defraud someone else of money, goods, or services. Common types of electronic communications include phone calls, emails, websites, and social media.

The following are the elements the prosecution must prove to convict someone of wire fraud:

  • The defendant intentionally or voluntarily devised or participated in a scheme to defraud another person of money, goods, or services.
  • The defendant committed the act with an intention to defraud someone else.
  • Interstate wire communications was used to commit and/or further the scheme or such wire communications would be used in the foreseeable future.

A conviction for wire fraud is a punishable by a maximum federal prison term of 20 years and fines no more than $250,000. If wire fraud affects or is committed against a financial institution, then a conviction will result in a prison sentence of up to 30 years.
